Chemical Peels

Chemical Peel San Francisco, CA

Not everything gets better with age. As you get older, your skin will start developing textural irregularities, discoloration, and new lines. Age will gradually make the smooth, firm skin of your youth fade into a memory.

Several internal and external factors contribute to the aging process, making you look older and less vibrant than you feel. Over the years, essential structural proteins like collagen and elastin production begin to dramatically decrease. This reduction causes loss of facial volume, fine lines, wrinkles, and a dullness that doesn’t even respond well to high-end medical-grade skin care products.

Years of unprotected time in the sun can also be a leading cause of progressive damage like age spots and hyperpigmentation. Luckily, facial rejuvenation procedures like chemical peels make it easy for you to take control of your aging process.

At Dermatology Medical Group of San Francisco, our highly trained physicians personally conduct all consultations and chemical peel treatments. They have been through countless training sessions using the advanced solutions and ingredients in the chemical peels we offer, and have thorough knowledge of how these solutions exfoliate dead, tired skin cells to reveal the fresh, vibrant, and youthful complexion beneath. For optimal results, choosing the right peel for your skin is essential. Our physicians are some of the most experienced board-certified dermatologists who regularly administer these treatments.

What Are Chemical Peels?

Chemical peels use a combination of exfoliating acids that refresh your complexion by removing the top layers of your skin, repairing years of damage and encouraging cell turnover. As safe, effective, and non-invasive treatments, they continue to gain popularity.

Chemical peels are ideal for addressing several skin issues, including:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun damage, freckles, and sunspots
  • Scarring from acne or injury
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Melasma
  • Uneven skin tone or redness

Depending on your skin concerns’ extent and your ideal aesthetic goals, you can choose from three different levels of chemical peel – mild, moderate, and deep. The deepest peels remove the most skin cells and deliver more dramatic results, but they also have a longer recovery period and aren’t suitable for all skin types.

Why We Love Chemical Peels

Wanting gorgeous, soft, youthful skin is nothing new. Requests for facial rejuvenation treatments continue increasing among women and men who want to look younger, prevent signs of aging, and gain confidence in their appearance. At DermSF, chemical peels are among the top facial rejuvenation procedures available to our patients in San Francisco.

Why do we love chemical peels? By design, they improve skin texture on your face, neck, and hands. During the procedure, we apply the peel on your skin. While it remains in place, it exfoliates the dead and damaged layers, revealing healthy new skin below the surface. The results are fast, effective, and long-lasting.

Another remarkable benefit of chemical peels is how effective they are at treating a broad range of blemishes and signs of aging. Plus, there is a solution for all skin types, whether your complexion is sensitive, oily, dry, or combination. Advanced studies have shown chemical peels can deliver more unique benefits than other high-tech anti-aging procedures, such as reversing melasma and fighting off breakouts.

Another reason chemical peels are more successful than other blemish-targeting procedures is that they entirely remove the dead and damaged uppermost skin layers to reveal clear, healthy, radiant new skin.

What to Expect From a Chemical Peel Procedure

Dermatology Medical Group of San Francisco is a leading provider of comprehensive medical and cosmetic care. Our physicians’ collaborative approach, artistic experience, and priority of the patient experience sets them apart from other nearby practices.

To begin your peel, your provider will thoroughly clean your skin of all makeup, oils, and skin care products. Next, they will apply a chemical solution chosen specifically to target your unique needs. After an observation period, they will neutralize the chemicals. Depending on the peel depth, they may apply a soothing ointment over the treated area to moisturize your skin and prevent discomfort.

During your treatment, you are likely to feel a stinging sensation as the chemicals begin to work their magic. If you are worried about potential discomfort, we can suggest an over-the-counter pain medication before arriving for your appointment. For deeper peels, we can provide a mild sedative or a local anesthetic to numb your face.

Typical side effects of chemical peels include redness, swelling, stinging, and skin peeling, much like a sunburn. While your skin is peeling, do not try to scratch, pick, or peel at the treated area. Instead, keep it moisturized. You should also avoid sun exposure until your skin has fully healed, and always wear sun protection afterward to protect your skin and results.

If you get a deep peel, you will need to take at least two weeks off for recovery. Milder peels typically don’t require any downtime.
